Linda Ridge | Pasadena, CA, USA

Perched in the rugged hills above Pasadena in California, LR2 House enjoys sublime views across the verdant city. Three stacked and rotated volumes clad in black Swisspearl panels cascade down the steeply inclined slope. The relationship between the volumes, the topography, and the treatment of the openings in the dark elongated facades lend LR2 house a sense of drama.

The entry follows the landscape guiding visitors along a walkway that extends under the mass of the building. The stairs create a curved path to a bridged entry portal, from where dramatic views of the house can be enjoyed. As the front door opens, the dark, angular façade clad with Swisspearl panels contrasts with the light-filled interior of soft wood and bright white finishes.
